An event every year that begins at 00:00 on day 5 of July, repeating indefinitely
When: July 5
First occurrence: 1998
X-Day is organized by the Church of the Subgenius.
A parody religion that celebrates the end of the world every year waiting for it’s followers to be beamed up into alien ships while the Earth gets blown up.
The idea is that while the date might be a gamble, some day must be the last day…eventually.
Decades ago this church was pretty novel and funny.
Back when a church based on science fiction stories was obviously seen as preposterous and hilarious.
As opposed to the other church-that-shall-not-be-named.
